AAC notebook: Three takeaways from Saturday’s Week 3 action

Probably one of the most dissected games this week will be what transpired at Raymond James Stadium on Friday. South Florida hosted a matchup against the juggernaut that is Alabama, having won just one FBS game in the last 1,420 days, dating back to October 2019. And for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide, it was quite unfamiliar territory considering it was just the program’s second non-conference road game since 2011.

The Bulls led for the majority of the first half and never trailed until the 4:35 mark of the third quarter. South Florida’s defense forced a whopping eight punts and dominated Alabama’s quarterbacks with pressure, producing five sacks and limiting the Crimson Tide to 10-of-23 from the pocket.
